AFS Corporate Sponsors meeting
The AFS Corporate Sponsors Committee distributed Market
Landscape Reports at the 2011 Corporate Sponsors meeting at the AFS Fall
Conference held October 17-20 in Houston, Texas. The reports begin the
AFS process of providing market intelligence and information to Corporate
Sponsors this year and going forward. The three reports distributed at
the Fall Conference Corporate Sponsors meeting were:
Membrane Technology for Liquid and Gas Filtration
U.S. Market for Residential Water Treatment
The AFS has further worked out a special arrangement
where Corporate Sponsors receive a discount for any existing Business
Communication Company (BCC) reports if purchased through the AFS. This
effort is part of a fulfillment of Corporate Sponsors requests to the
AFS for market intelligence.
In addition to the Market Landscape Reports, the Corporate Sponsors requested
additional education for all employees. Accordingly, the first Webinar
is now available for Corporate Sponsors. The first four-hour, four-module
Webinar is titled, Filtration & Separations Media Market, a comprehensive
study and technical review of the eight most common media, their applications,
use, market size, market trends, characteristics, and more. Additional
Webinars, exclusive to Corporate Sponsors are planned throughout 2012.
Sponsors will now be able to use AFS Webinars to provide in-house training
to all new company employees and journeymen alike.
The AFS will continue to provide the Job Board at no cost to Corporate
Sponsors. Sponsors can list open employee positions on the AFS website.
Anyone visiting the AFS website will have full access and can apply for
a position directly to the Corporate Sponsor company listing the open
